On screen clock with seconds display...

by cgarrity / July 21, 2009 1:27 PM PDT

Anyone have a free on screen clock that displays seconds? I looked at a few today and one of them had a virus which my system hopefully blocked.

I need a "seconds" display for eBay last minute buying. I had a great one, but when I upgraded to Win 7, it went bye-bye.

Doesn't Windows 7 have a selection of clocks?
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / July 26, 2009 4:41 AM PDT

I'm not using my Windows 7 at the moment so I can't be sure, but when I right click the clock in the Notification Area and select "Adjust Date/Time" in the new window I can select a desktop display. Do any of those have the seconds hand?

Also, selecting that "Adjust Date/Time" and the window that displays has a clock that shows a second hand.

Thanks, that works...

I had the gadget clock up, but didn't realize it could display seconds. That solves my Win 7 eBay problem. My MacBook has the seconds already displayed by default. Now I all I have to get is my XP laptop although that's no biggie because 99% of my last minute eBay bidding is done on my other 2 computers.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
